NY Vacation for Jim & Alex

Posted in Parish Family Events, Vacation FUN on August 27, 2009 by wizbandit

Alex and I drove up to NY for a the week of 8/7 to 8/17 for a bit of R&R.  I visited with dad and my Brother, we had BBQ on the grill every day consisting of Sausages, hamburgs, hotdogs, peppers, onions and fresh NY sweet corn.  The first two days were cold and stormy with rain & thunderstorms rolling through every hour.  The days following were nothing short of spectacular, days in the mid 80’s and nights in the 60’s, blue skies and bright sunshine.

We spent the last 5 days going to Sheldrake Point on Cayuga Lake everyday for BBQ, Beers and boating with some “tube-ing”.  Alex had a blast.  I rode the tube once and my brother could not resist flipping me off into the chilly lake water. No pics of that tho but I can still taste the lake water…





Thanksgiving in the Caribbean

Posted in Vacation FUN on December 4, 2007 by wizbandit

Our long planned cruise Thanksgiving week was a good time for all.  Cruisers included myself, my 86 year old dad, his long time friend Peter Depew, my 17 year old son Michael, my brother Brian and his young wife.  Leaving the house and projects for just a week put me behind and I have just now started to catch up, one being this blog update.

Welcome to “HELL”.  Hell, Cayman Islands. For all those who have told me to “send me a postcard from hell”, at $5 each you can go to Hell and get your own :)-
